Morning Prayers


This very first prayer should be said the very moment after one wakes, and as their feet hit the ground:

"O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine, all praise and all thanksgiving be every moment Thine." (Say this 3 times for each Person of the Holy Trinity.)

The Traditional, 3 "Golden Hail Marys" formula to be said upon waking and before retiring to bed. Say the Hail Mary 3 times, and after each time say:
"By thy holy, and immaculate conception, O Mary, make my heart (will) PURE and my soul HOLY. Preserve me this day from mortal sin, and guide me that I may not commit one, single, fully deliberate venial sin. Amen."

Morning Offering:
"O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer Thee my thoughts, words, prayers and actions throughout this day (or evening, when it is said just before bed), in union with all the holy Sacrifices throughout the world, in reparation for my sins, for the (rightly ordered) intentions of the Holy Father, for the conversion of sinners, for the intentions of my friends, family, and benefactors (any/all kinds, inc.: even spiritual), and for the Poor Souls in Purgatory. Eternal rest grant onto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.+"

Fatima Prayer
The Pardon Prayer[edit] The seers said this prayer was taught to them in the initial Fátima apparition in the spring of 1916, by an angel who called himself "the Guardian Angel of Portugal".

"My God, I believe, I adore, I hope and I love Thee! I beg pardon for all those that do not believe, do not adore, do not hope and do not love Thee. You might also add: "Help me this day and increase my faith, hope and love that I may better adore you throughout my life. Amen."

Prayer to Re-Consecrate Your Will to Jesus through Mary, and Ask for Her Assistance

Most Powerful and Holy Mother Mary, Most Obedient to the Father, Virginal Spouse of the Holy Ghost, and Mother of God the Son, I invoke you for this day under the title, Queen of All the Angels. By placing my hand on my heart, I renew my vows of Consecration to Jesus through your intercession and this request for your assistance. Keep me from all sin, and take issue with every temptation. Calm my fears, anxieties, and fill me with holy hope and trust in the Lord. Make my heart full of this love that while I am still being made pure, that holy obedience is my first desire in all things. Let not my actions add to your sorrows, but rather, wash all evil inclinations within and attacks from the outside with the Precious Blood of your son, Jesus. By this Precious Blood, heal all old wounds, and bring increased peace into my heart. Grant me an increase in piety, wisdom and prudence to order my priorities that I may fulfill my duties according to your holy will. Make me so obedient, that I may be and remain for eternity your worthy daughter/son. Amen.+
(This prayer is to be repeated at the beginning of each day. Every time, throughout the day, when you place your hand upon your heart, you renew this prayer's request.)

Here is just an additional Fatima Prayer: The Angel's Prayer[edit]
In the autumn of that year, according to Lucia, she and her cousins saw the same angel again, and he taught them a second prayer. At the same time they beheld a vision of the Blessed Sacrament suspended in the air before which the Angel prostrated himself and prayed:

"O Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore Thee profoundly. I offer Thee the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. By the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary I beg the conversion of poor sinners."
